Listening is Your Super Power
Communicating to Achieve Powerful Results
Poor communication is the issue mentioned most often in response to questions about problems in companies, organizations, and relationships.
What is the reason for this? Typically, our communication cycle is incomplete. Most are quick to deliver their message, but too often it is not delivered effectively. More so, the assumption that people are listening to actually understand, is all too often wrong.
This quote, by William H. Whyte in a 1950 article in Fortune magazine, sums up the single biggest problem in communication. “The great enemy of communication, we find, is the illusion of it.” He goes on to say “We have talked enough; but we have not listened. And by not listening we have failed to concede the immense complexity of our society–and thus the great gaps between ourselves and those with whom we seek understanding.”
Communication is part art and part science. In this talk, Bill addresses both of those aspects. He delivers actionable, effective, and proven ways to be a better listener and to be better heard.
